How to get Panel to show



  • Hi everyone,

    I am a real noob when it comes to this sort of stuff.
    With that being said, I’d like for the top panel to show through the MagicMirror program so I can access it easily without having to exit the MagicMirror itself.

    I have (almost) tried everything under the sun to show but when I start up the MagicMirror, it wont show.

    Also, I can’t use the mouse when on the MagicMirror. When I am on desktop, it autohides when inactive but it wont show at all when on MagicMirror.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    I think you are talking about the menu bar. You simply press your Alt key to drop the menu down when in the MagicMirror.

    Also, I can’t use the mouse when on the MagicMirror. When I am on desktop, it autohides when inactive but it wont show at all when on MagicMirror.

    The mouse is hidden in the Mirror so you don’t see a cursor. If you press your Alt key the menu bar will drop down. You won’t see the cursor until you move your mouse upwards all the way. Then the cursor will be visible when it enters the menu bar

    to get the cursor visible when MM is running add

    html {
      cursor: default;
    
    }
    

    in the custom.css file (that can be found in the css folder)

    And you can add

    electronOptions : { autoHideMenuBar: false },
    

    in the config file (place under the line that says “units”)



  • @broberg Hi Broburg,

    Thanks for the comment, when I applied your code you gave me, the cursor worked but there isn’t anywhere in either of the css files with a line that says unit.

    Sorry if there answer is clear to you but not me, I’m not really good with all this.

    Thanks in advance

    @PhilsterM9 not in the css file, your config.js file.



  • @broberg thanks, just tried it now and it works. Thanks for the help!
